United Culture @ Havas
One of the world’s largest communications groups, Havas Media, had an ambition. To bring its 24 London-based agencies, spread across seven different locations and comprising 2000 people, together under one roof.
This would transform the working experience for employees. As the only major UK communications group to have all its companies based within the same building, the move has created cross-agency teams that work together not just on paper - but teams that are physically, culturally and financially aligned.
This ambitious project has also created the ultimate in workplace flexibility, enabling employees to choose when, where and how they work. 24 different agencies, each with their own home in the building, now mix together in communal spaces, quiet spaces, over coffee, at lunch.
This large-scale project produced a long term partnership with JLL and Havas; from the very first steps where our Tenant Representation team worked closely to understand the brief and then find and secure the property, to our Project Management team who set the strategy for delivery and then ran the large scale and complex fit-out.
The result? Moving into the HKX Building has established Havas as the only truly integrated marketing and communications company in the UK – a multi-disciplinary offering, all united under one leadership, all in one building. Being in a workplace that helps builds a culture where creativity seamlessly comes together is a fundamental part of that story.
